Aristides Priakos, or “Ari” as his friends call him, has been with American Equity Mortgage since January 2016. A Florida native, Ari is the son of famed symphony conductor, Vasilios Priakos, who started the Ft. Lauderdale Philharmonic. Working in the financial, mortgage and real estate markets is in his blood. His mother was part of the launch of Keller Williams Real Estate in San Antonio, Texas.
Beginning his financial career in the early 90’s, Ari was an investment banker, managing a multi-billion dollar bond portfolio to Wall Street. After an extensive career as a bond trader, Ari helped establish a Texas mortgage company, which is still a top tier lending company in the area today.
Ari can work with you on any mortgage need, from beachfront condos to luxury homes. He has expert knowledge in VA lending, and is proud to serve the brave men and women that serve, or have served, our great country. Ari states, “My realtors enjoy working with me for my extensive financial background and my keen knowledge in the real estate and lending industry.”
Mr. Priakos is an award winning published author of personal development books. His last two, “I Alone! Mastering Life’s Seven Principles,” and “The Reference Point,” have become international best-sellers. His writing has put him in high demand as a motivational public speaker with engagements nationwide, addressing groups from 250 to 10,000.
Ari lives with his fiancé just outside of Tampa, FL. His daughter is a student at Florida State University in Tallahassee. When Ari’s not working, you will find him on the beaches of the world, talking about life to complete strangers.
